It was then that the fireworks began in earnest.

Garcia hit the next hitter, Josh Donaldson, near the left elbow pad with a 94 mph fastball from a 0-1 count.

Toronto regained composure and ran a two-run rally in the eighth. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. took the leadoff walk from Loaisiga and sprinted home from start to finish with a head first slide in Gurriel’s line drive double in Chad Green’s left field.

Gurriel advanced home to third base and scored from Alejandro Kirk’s sacrifice fly.

Toronto have lost three of their three straight games and lost six of their eight games.

Here’s Lindor’s explanation that day: “’I’ve never seen a New York rat.’ So we sprinted down. I wanted to go see the New York rat, and (McNeil) got mad at me and said, ‘It’s a raccoon, not a rat.’”
